Ridge View Lodge  is a "sister property" to Blue Mountain Lodge. Located higher up the same street as Blue Mountain Lodge, it is a totally custom designed hybrid log and heavy timber mountain home - no other one is like it! 

It took us 3 years of brainstorming, drawing up 3D plans (yes, we did it ourselves!), and veryfying every small detail before wefinally  knew  that we had exactly wthat we wanted.  Next step was taking our plans to log home supplier's architect  to get them professionally drawn and the process had begun.  We paid attention to every single detail, from looks to how the cabin would be oriented to maximize the mountain view to achieving best possible energy efficiency , comfort, durability and luxury. We officially broke ground on Nov 8, 2016. 

Here is what is unique about Ridge View Lodge :

  • Heavy timber frame scissor trusses supporting the roof
  • Front "prow" wall of windows on all 3 levels to maximize the view of surrounding ridge and Mt. Leconte
  • A lower level walk out to the yard
  • Main level design geared toward increased accessibility (36" wide inetrior doors, grab bars in the master bathroom, easy low threshold access to decks) for the guests who prefer fewer stairs; future handicap access ramp
  • Master bathroom with heated floors, separate 60" shower and a whirlpool tub
  • Open concept family and dining room with a gas log fireplace
  • Dining room with custom farm-style table to seat 12
  • Upper level will feature secondary master king bedroom with acess to the bathroom plus a queen bedroom, open loft area with a pool table overlooking  the family room and a picture window with a view of mountain ridge
  • Lower level with 2nd fireplace, kitchenette, games, TV viewing area plus a queen bedroom, a bunk bedroom and a full bath - so that youngsters can entertain themselves while adults enjoy quiter time upstairs
  • Full house Fire-protection sprinkler system
  • Fully equipped kitchen with an island and stainless applainces

I came to the Smoky mountians with a friend in 2009 for the first time during winter snowfall. It was so pretty! Living in Florida, we missed having seasons. Todd and I (Victoria) came together several more times, and we knew - Smoky Mountains was the place! We bought our cabin in 2010. For now, we are living and working in Tampa FL,  and looking forward to making Sevier county our permanent home one day.

We love DIY projects, and we have restored or made many furniture and decor pieces you will see in our cabin.
